Maria Simonin, went to join the party in Heaven with her loved ones on Tuesday June 16th. Maria was born in El Salvador on July 4th 1929. She made her way to the U.S. in 1964, to work as a housekeeper in Boston. It is there in Boston that she met and married her husband, George E. Simonin (deceased). Together they raised a family of 8 children: Carlos Armando (deceased), Mario, Jorge, Diane, Delmy, Luis (deceased) Lillian, and Dina. In 1975, the family moved across country from Boston to Concord CA. where Maria had a brother, Medardo Canales (deceased). Maria worked in the Veterans Hospital in Martinez for over 20 years and lived in Concord for the remainder of her days.
Maria was a gregarious soul. She loved a good party, loved to dance and sing along to music. Her laugh was contagious and she never turned away a friend in need. She was fortunate to travel around the world, meeting new people and experiencing new cultures. Most of all, she loved her children and grandchildren, of which she had 16. Maria was loved dearly and will be missed by her family and many friends.
Family will have a Celebration of Life at a later date.
